When three friends find a golden crown on a rock in the forest, they argue over who should wear it. Written on the rock is the message: "For the mightiest." But who is the mightiest? When a tiny old woman comes along, Bear, Elephant and Lion agree to take turns to see who can scare her the best. But their contest goes awry when a GIANT appears to claim the crown for his own. Is he the mightiest? Not if the tiny old woman has anything to say about it: she's his mom. And she's not too happy about her son being such a bully!

Keiko's latest charmer plays with size and power, in her inimitable style, with adorable animals, perfect pacing and hilarious understatement. As any kid knows, there's no one mightier than Mom.
